Middle Sister

July 30-31, 2005

Drove to Obsidian Trailhead Saturday afternoon. We backpacked in to Scott Springs and made camp. We got up at about 5:30 a.m. Sunday morning, ate breakfast and left for the summit at 6:20 a.m. We took the climbers trail up to just short of the Upper Collier Glacier, then turned south for Middle Sister. There was a 40-foot snowfield below the summit, and we cut footholds in it to gain the summit. When we arrived, there were two people on the summit who had come up the South Ridge. We stayed on the summit about 45 minutes, and went back to camp via the Renfrew Glacier; it had lots of blue ice showing on it. We got back to camp packed up and were back in Eugene by 7:30 p.m. Participating were non-member J. Lapeyne, member Bob Harrison, and leader Bill Johnson.
